ecobee Brings Added Peace of Mind and Value to Smart Security with Smoke Alarm Detection

A phone screen shows a notification from ecobee that says "Smoke alarm alert - my home: We detected a smoke alarm sound while you home was armed."

TORONTO – February 1, 2021 – Today, ecobee introduced Smoke Alarm Detection to its groundbreaking home monitoring platform, Smart Security. With this new feature, ecobee Smart Security users can opt-in to receive notifications if a smoke alarm is detected in either armed away or armed stay mode.

Replacing standard smoke alarms with the latest WiFi connected models can be quite costly. At only $5 per month, ecobee Smart Security is a great value solution for homeowners looking to guard against fire damage, even while away from home. The ecobee SmartCamera and SmartThermostat with voice control will recognize the sound of the smoke alarm and alert anyone who has access to the ecobee app so a fire never goes unnoticed.

With this latest rollout ecobee continues to strengthen its Smart Security offering, alongside a new attractive price point for the ecobee SmartCamera with voice control ($99.99 USD). Whether at home or on the go, ecobee offers additional ways to get more out of the devices you already have for added peace of mind.
